What to Do If Your Workers' Compensation Claim is Denied in Florida

Receiving a denial for a workers' compensation claim can be discouraging, but it's important to know that it's not the end of the road. This blog outlines the steps you should take if your claim is denied in Florida and how legal support can make a difference.

Steps to Take After a Denial

  1. Understand the Reason for Denial: Carefully review the denial letter from the insurance company to understand their reasons, which can range from missing documentation to disputes over the work-related nature of the injury.
  2. File an Appeal: In Florida, you have the right to appeal a denial. This process typically involves filing a petition with the Florida Division of Administrative Hearings.
  3. Gather Additional Evidence: This can include medical records, witness statements, and any other documentation that supports the nature and extent of your injury.
  4. Attend Mediation: Before your case goes to a hearing, you will likely attend a mediation session, where a mediator will try to help you and the insurance company reach an agreement.
  5. Hearing Before a Judge: If mediation is unsuccessful, your case will proceed to a formal hearing where a judge will make a decision based on the evidence presented.
